Names of God as it was used in the Old Testament of the Bible, along with a Bible reference for you. Plus a Christian song with one of these names of God in it.

I saw this on a poster at church in one of Sunday School rooms. I wanted to share this with you.  It is how God is referred to in the Old Testament. Along with each one is a verse the references to that verse. These names are Hebrew. I saw this poster during our Vacation Bible School in 2012 where I was in the adult class as a student.

Even our pastor at our church will use a lot of these names especially Elohim. I also hear our pastor say Jehova-jreh too.

 Names of God

  • Elohim (Hebrew name for God) Genesis 1:1
  • Jehovah/Yahweh/Lord (Self-Exist or God of Israel) Genesis 2:4
  • El Elyon (the most high God) Genesis 14:18
  • Adonai (Our Master, Lord) Genesis 15:2
  • El-Olam (Everlasting God) Genesis 21:33
  • Jehovah-jreh (The Lord will provide, it shall be seen) Genesis 22:14
  • Jehovah-rophe (Lord who heals) Exodus 15:26
  • Jehovah-nessi (Lord our banner) Exodus 17:15
  • Jehovah-M’Kaddesh (Lord who sanctities) Leviticus 20:8
  • Jehovah-Elohim (The Lord God) Deuteronomy 6:4
  • Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord our Peace) Judges 6:4
  • Jehovah-Saboth (Lord of Host) 1 Samuel 1:11
  • Jehovah-rohi (Lord my Shepherd) Psalm 23:1
  • Jehovah-Tsidkenu (Lord our righteous) Jeremiah 23:5
  • Jehovah-Shammah (Lord is present) Exodus 48:35

It was blasphemy to say God’s name so it was only written in that time. That brings me to the point, God’s Last Name is not Damn!

There is even a Christian song with Yahweh in it. It is by Phil Wickham called At Your Name (Yahweh, Yahweh).
